Closing the infrastructure gap: the role of public-private partnerships
On the Infrastructure Agenda
This global report produced by Deloitte research finds there is significant evidence of the large and growing gap between infrastructure needs and historical rates of investment: congested roads; bridges in need of repair; poorly maintained transit systems and recreational facilities; and deteriorated hospitals, schools, and waste treatment facilities. These problems in turn impose huge societal costs, from lower productivity and reduced competitiveness, to an increased number of accidents. Ireland is no different in many of these regards.
While public-private partnerships (PPPs) are unlikely to ever replace traditional infrastructure financing and development, they can be an important tool for governments hoping to address infrastructure shortages because of the benefits they offer. This report outlines the benefits and challenges of, and addresses criticism against PPPs, and provides a roadmap for governments at all stages of PPP development to take public-private partnerships to the next stage of development.
